Our Mission

Rise with Resilience is a unique fitness experience that offers a safe space where people from all backgrounds can come together and move. By focusing on how movement makes us feel, we create space for joy, for fun, and for confidence to RISE! In our programs we are constantly moving to the beat, improving our physical health, shifting our mindset from how we look to how moving makes us feel, and most importantly we’re having a good time!

Weight, height, age, gender identity, race; these are only some of the numerous ways you might feel at odds with your body, and the fitness industry and diet industries certainly don’t help. Bodies change, bodies fluctuate. We go through tough times. We are constantly faced with adversity, discrimination. But guess what… we are RESILIENT.


This is your time to celebrate all that you have been through and indulge in fitness that is empowering. You deserve it.

Rise with Resilience Mission Statement

Jenni Morse, Founder

Hi there! My name is Jenni, and I am the founder of Rise with Resilience™. I know firsthand how mentally draining it is to be constantly surrounded by messages to hate your body. I’ve been through it, and many of my clients have been through it as well. As a long time fitness professional and former dancer, I always found it hard to find a community that was truly uplifting, empowering, and body neutral. Fitness has always been my own personal source of empowerment, so now I aim to heal other's negative body image through fitness. Because (and as I always tell my clients) fitness is fun, and fitness feels good.

Originally from Toronto, I spent 10 years touring Canada and the United States with several professional dance companies. In 2013 I moved to Montreal to further pursue my career in dance. It was here that I discovered Zumba and a newfound passion for bringing joy to people’s lives through movement! Since propelling myself into the fitness industry, I have hosted numerous Zumba Fitness parties and fundraisers, taught at several of Montreal’s most popular fitness clubs, and helped countless men and women to feel strong, fit, and confident, both online and in person!


Lourdes Diaz


Lourdes is a Guatemalan born and raised, and became a Rise with Resilience team member in 2022. She went to law school in one of the private universities of Guatemala. Like many, she had to work to be able to pay for her studies and that's how she became a freelance digital marketing specialist and never looked back.

Lourdes helps us out with marketing and admin work but she also shares a love for exercising and is an avid hiker and camper who loves to explore the volcanoes and mountains near her.
